Abstract : The stress intensity factors at the crack roots for single edge cracks in a rectangular sheet with constrained ends are considered. The stress analysis for this mixed boundary problem is carried out using conformal mapping and complex variables. Numerical results are obtained for varying crack lengths and length-to-width ratios of the sheet over a range considered of practical interest for the use of short test specimens. (Author)
